Farewell, Scienceblogs. This will be my last post at SB’s DSN. It’s a little sad for me, because I kinda feel like I grew up here. Since I started blogging, I had two little girls, moved from Los Angeles to Texas, bought a house, and enrolled in a PhD program. Since moving to ScienceBlogs, I completed my coursework, passed qualifiers, and started writing my dissertation. So, it can be done! Don’t let that cranky luddite professor discourage you. There’s always time for ScienceBlogs.
To ScienceBlogs, thank you for inviting us and nurturing us here. This is a unique gathering. The community taught me alot about science, and scientists, and community itself, and I am thankful. I learned about the battle we face, and about our new place in society, and how we need to be ready to fight for science, and frame things. Seriously, we’re redefining a new medium together. ScienceBlogs is a great place to be.
Before we sail I want to give a shout out to the awesome staff. They really are the best at what they do, pioneering a new, more informed media with the power to change and to grow. Thank you Ginny, Katherine, Tim, and Adam. You keep the lights on. It was wonderful to be a part of this. Thanks to DSN readers and co-bloggers. You lift us up. Craig and Kevin, you drive us deeper. Rock on. I’ll see you on the other side.
Please, everyone, join us as we seek a new adventure at Discovery Earth.
